Information On Social Skills and Relationships
People on the autistic spectrum can find social interaction difficult. There are lots of unwritten rules in social interaction that neurotypical people seem to learn, follow and know instinctively. Social rules can seem confusing or take more processing for people on the spectrum.
Aspiration offer workshops on social interaction and communication that might be helpful. You can look at these online below. If you’d prefer to attend a face-to-face group workshop then contact the team on 01235 359388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
